    Hello all! I love the concept of this group. I missed round 41, but plan to join for 42. I'll search the forums for it tomorrow! I am also starting keto tomorrow. I've let way too much sugar and processed food sneak back into my diet.

    5/23 - Starting late. I’ve been very off the last 1.5weeks which I’ve put it down to PMS. But TOM has started but my tummy is not feeling well still. On Monday (21.05.18), I felt so full and I wasnt able to eat properly but i tried. On Monday night, my stomach was very bloated and it was hurting mildly. Didnt think much of it - thought maybe my over indulging it from the previous week and Sunday was causing this. Came Tuesday, my bloating had gone slightly down over night but still there but by night time, it was very bloated again that it was hurting. It was uncomfortable and waddling like I was in the late pregnancy stages. My partner made a comment that my stomach looked odd. I think I might have eaten something that I’m sensitive to but I havent been sensitive to anything my whole life! I checked my food diary and I can only put it down to have gluten at night time as I didnt have gluten products in the morning. Best to check with the docs..

    5/24 - 63.6kgs. I was so pissed off with my so called doctors appointment yesterday that I ended up not caring what I was eating because I needed to be calmed down. I made a doctors apointment at 1pm. Was there on time. After 25 min of waiting, I decided to check where the doctors at and the receptionist told me the doctors on her lunch break. This was the same receptionist who checked me in! What made me annoyed is that I’m on my work lunch break as well so I have limited time, no one called me to let me know this doctor decided to take lunch break when I’m scheduled in and the receptionist didnt tell me when I checked in! Anyways so I calmed myself down with sushi train, and biscuits, and pizza….But back on the wagon today! I realised I’ve been so focused no what I CANT have, rather than what I CAN have, so I’ve been eating what I shouldtn be eating more. Todays a new day!

    5/25 - 63.6kgs

    5/26 - 63.6kgs

    5/27 - 62.8kgs. Yes met goal!

    Age 60, 5'4.5" and eating in a livable way = It's. Not. A. Diet. I eat back exercise calories, or I would be starving and cranky. Hubby does not like cranky me. Changed MFP setting 5/5/18 [R39] to 1/2# per week loss ~ within 10# of UGW, weight loss had stalled 3 months + was feeling hungry more often.

    Round 40 (previous round)
    05/08: 154.0 Did ok all day, stuck w/ prelogged meals & snacks, and net calories w/i limit... then late evening snacking on walnut halves ~ ack!!! Really liking my new calorie limit, but need to figure out what to do about snack attacks ~ I never used to. Rest day ~ Fitbit 10,194 steps, 250+ steps 13/14 & 30 floors. Raked part of front yard after work ~ so many whirlybirds ~ that was a good arm workout!
    05/09: 154.0 Yes! Stuck pretty much w/ prelogged meals, snacks + one curveball. Net calories green, sodium red (leftover Chinese food), sugar -13 (some fruit, power muffin, but also unplanned small portion of ice cream cake in office for manager's granddaughter's 5th bday ~ don't get me started!), fiber & protein good & 17c water ~ actually felt thirsty! Walked dog before work / 3.4 mi 1:02:23.

    05/10: 153.5 I think changing my MFP setting to 1/2# per week, and having more net calories to play with, is agreeing with me. Net calories -15, sodium -721, sugar -19 (mostly fruit, power muffin & yogurt), fiber excellent, protein good & 14c water. Walked dog before work in off + on sprinkles + beat the rain / 3.43 mi 1:01:05 / remembered to stretch. Fitbit 16,489 steps, 250+ steps 14/14 (boom!) & 46 floors. Workplace step challenge ~ currently in 31st place / top 30 women get prize at 10-week point... too bad leader board combines men & women, and everyone is listed by code number with no gender identification.
    05/11: 154.0 Net calories -85, sodium -517, sugar -13, fiber & protein good & 14c water. Walked dog after work 3.42 mi 59:43. Fitbit 13,538 steps, 250+ steps 12/14 & 41 floors.
    05/12: 153.5 Rest day / Fitbit 9,134 steps, 250+ steps 13/14 & 33 floors. Net calories -156, sodium green (yay), sugar -12, protein good, fiber excellent & 14c water, so not too bad for rest day.
    05/13: 154.0 Walked dog 3.81 mi 1:06:24 pace 17:25 / remembered to stretch. Fitbit 16,035 steps, 250+ steps 10/14 & 29 floors. Ate ice cream after dinner. Oops. Net calories -191, sodium -594, sugar -12, fiber & protein good. Oh well, it was an active day.
    05/14: 153.5 Walked dog 4.36 miles 1:16:38 pace 17:34 ~ happy dog & happy me. Fitbit 18,600 steps, 250+ steps 11/14 & 33 floors. Dinner plans had to be changed b/c something I thought I had in freezer - not! Still managed to keep net calories & sugar green, sodium red, fiber & protein a little low, 14c water.
    05/15: 153.0 Weight machine & circuit training before work. Fitbit 14,642 steps, 250+ steps 14/14 (boom!) & 18 floors ~ observation fieldwork = lots of steps. Net calories green (yay), sodium -673, sugar -32 (had no idea baked beans would be so high / may have screwed up glucose reading ~ ack!), fiber & protein excellent & 14c water. [5/15/18 annual workplace Health Risk Assessment at 8:15 a.m. (fasting blood draw)]
    05/16: 152.5 Rest day since couldn't eat or work out before HRA / nurses were impressed by my changes since last year. :blush: Had to promote MFP & my MFP community, of course ~ I couldn't have done it without you! <3 Fitbit 7,694 steps, 250+ steps 13/14 & 28 floors. Net calories -142 (not too bad for rest day), sodium green (YAY), sugar -3, fiber & protein a little low & 13c water.
    05/17: 153.0 Walked dog before work / 3.07 mi 53:07 pace 17:17. Fitbit 14,681 steps, 250+ steps 14/14 (boom!) & 62 floors. Net calories -138, sodium & sugar green (yay), fiber & protein good & 14c water. [5/17/18 ~ 8 hr seminar + 1 hr drive time = very sedentary day]

    05/18: 153.5 Had 8 hr seminar + 1 hr drive time + no workout = very sedentary day. Fitbit 5,483 steps, 250+ steps 8/14 & 12 floors. Had every intention of eating small portions of whatever lunch and refreshments were served. Not so much. By evening, the introvert in me was exhausted, having handled seminar check-in and networking with 26 people in my professional association all day, even though I loved it. So after I drove 33 miles back to my city & deposited seminar checks at in-store bank, I picked up rotisserie chicken, deli salads and a few groceries on my way home, and proceeded to eat with abandon, including WAY too much sugar. After, felt bloated and blah. 11c water (at least I did that right). Starting fresh today.
    05/19: 154.0 Hahahaha... had 2 margaritas (first time in very long time) w/ BFF, and really enjoyed our time together / ordered entree that I love from the lighter menu / snacked WAY too much in evening ~ for some reason, really had the munchies ~ oh well, moving on from net calories -765 & sodium -2,587.

Tried new recipe for skillet lasagna ~ will be making again! Net calories -39, sugar -8 (small hot fudge sundae at DQ w/ hubby), sodium green (YAY), fiber & protein a little low & 12c water.
    05/21: 153.5 Walked dog 4.35 mi 1:14:21 pace 17:06 ~ happy dog & happy me. Yardwork in afternoon (Sun.). Fitbit 17,524 steps, 250+ steps 11/14 & 33 floors ~ earned Shooting Star Badge :star: 20,000 lifetime floors! Net calories calories -159, sodium -1,560 (ack!), sugar green (yay), fiber & protein excellent (yay) & 10c water.

    Round 41 (my 5th)

    #37: 142.6 - 137.4 = -5.2
    #38: 137.4 - 136.8 = -0.6
    #39: 136.8 - 136.2 = -0.6
    #40: 136.2 - 135.0 = -1.2

    Day/Weight/Comment

    5/18: 135.6, enjoyed a nice date with wine tasting and 1/2 of a thin crust pizza. Well worth the salt blowup.

    5/19: 134.8, a little under my daily minimum calories and macros too fat heavy. Very busy at work yesterday and a sick dog all last night. I'm curious to see how my energy level will affect my appetite and cravings today.

    5/20: 134.2, been putting in a lot of work hours = lack of meal prep and cooking. Eggs are this girl’s best friend. Egg salad (3 medium eggs + .5 TBS mayo + .5 TBS mustard) on 1 slice of Dave’s Awesome bread-thin slice is a very filling meal.

    5/21: 134.2, was at a deficit yesterday, but I was preoccupied with snackish-junk food; a sure sign I was tired. Good thing I didn’t have cash on me and I was too busy most of the day to cave in. The accountability of this challenge and my group text friends is really keeping me on track. Thank you everyone.

    5/22: 133.4, certainly enjoyed this. Not a lot of food yesterday which isn’t great. Definitely looking forward to my next day off.

    5/23: 133.4, looking like this is going to stick.

    5/24: 134.4, after 3 days of eating sugar I’m not surprised.

    5/25: 133.6, restaurant food, wine tasting, and dancing all night. I wonder what tomorrow will look like.

    5/26: skipped the scale - driving out of town
    5/27: out of town
